The United States Golf Association Museum in Far Hills is extending its exhibit “More Than A Game” until Sunday, January 31, 2016. The exhibit focuses on the creation of African-American golf clubs during the Jim Crow era, and how those clubs had a positive impact on communities across the country. The museum is located at 77 Liberty Corner Road.
The exhibit concentrates on the story of the late William “Bill” Powell and the Clearview Golf Club in Ohio. Founded in 1946 in East Canton, it is the only public golf course in the United States designed, built and owned by an African American. The “More Than A Game” exhibit celebrates the contributions of Powell and the other men and women who made sacrifices in an effort to realize their dream of equality on the golf course. The exhibit also includes a short film produced by Dan Levinson of Moxie Pictures that portrays this inspiring story of passion and social justice. “More Than A Game” is the third exhibit in the USGA Museum since 2010 to celebrate minority golf stories.
The USGA Museum is also home to the world’s premier collection of golf artifacts and memorabilia. It is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10:00am to 5:00pm, and is closed on Mondays and major holidays. For information about tickets, visit www.usga.org
